The Army Officer Education Program offers students an opportunity to receive officer training while earning their undergraduate degrees. Upon successful completion of that program and graduation, students are offered commissions in the U.S. Army. Scholarship students in this program receive full tuition and fees, books, and a monthly subsistence allowance of $200. (Check current guidelines for confirmation of tuition cost.)
Students participating in the Army Officer Education Program may compete for two-year or three-year on-campus ROTC scholarships. Although students are advised to enroll in the program as first-year students, enrollment is possible throughout the first and sophomore years. Training includes instruction in leadership and management, with opportunities for supervised experience, including paid participation in training camp, normally during the summer after the junior year.
